  Bears | Two players released    Sat Sep 13, 01:51 PM

The Chicago Bears released CB Kelvin Hayden and FB Tony Fiammetta Saturday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Hayden was originally cut at final cuts, but was re-signed at the start of September. Fiammetta got a two-year extension in December of last year. Neither was a factor in the opening week, Fiammetta due to injury (and was already out for this week). The team has other needs with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall banged up.
